Legion - Chapter 10

David (Dan Stevens) is conflicted as the search for the Shadow King continues. Betrayed once in this episode by Farouk, who killed several agents when David lured the team away from Division 3 on a wild goose chase, David reaches back out to future Syd (Rachel Keller) in hopes of understanding why she needs him to help their enemy. Refusing to go into details, Syd hints at something far more dangerous which they will need the Shadow King's help to face. She also remarks multiple times on how much David has changed. Is it just me, or does this sound like David is the greater threat threat that will need to be stopped?

Other subplots involve Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) growing tired of being trapped by the Shadow King and Kerry (Amber Midthunder) and Cary (Bill Irwin) struggling with the aftereffects of the villain's attack on Division 3 that leave their connection flipped resulting in both struggling to find a new normal. The more interesting question than figuring out to fix what Farouk did to them was why he did it? Rather than kill either of both of them (as he does with so many others), why screw with their reality? Was it just for the thrill or does it help to serve some larger plan?
